Diversity and Inclusion Strategy and Policy Design

Establish valuable diversity and inclusion strategies and policies with expert tailored guidance

Effective and intelligent diversity and inclusion strategies and policies are critical to ensuring your organisation attracts and accommodates diverse talent and customers.

EW Group has significant, longstanding experience in assessing organisations’ diversity policies and inclusive working practices, and making recommendations for their immediate and strategic development.

Our diversity consultants design and deliver facilitated sessions for staff and senior leaders. Together, we will engage individuals from all parts of your business, using their insights to create a set of common goals to apply across all divisions.

EW Group’s established diversity research principles allow us to throw new light on the experiences of different groups within your workforce. We can then use this to build up a picture of your company for use as a benchmark, and the basis from which you can develop an action plan on diversity.

Benefit from a purpose-built diversity and inclusion strategy, and policies that make a meaningful difference.

Diversity roadmaps and action plans that work for you

Understanding your organisation’s diversity profile is the foundation from which to build an inclusive business. We will work with you to perform an analysis that identifies your areas of strength, as well as current challenges and areas you can improve upon.

In the short-term, we will identify a range of quick wins unique to your organisation. Looking ahead, we will explore the resources required for more ambitious culture change programmes.

Typically, we will combine data and documentary diversity analysis, with interviews alongside a small selection of your staff and business leaders. These will take the form of structured and confidential small group and/or one-to-one conversations.

Our initial findings will inform the group’s co-creation of a diversity roadmap and action plan. From here, we can then design and facilitate a session focused on progressing you towards diversity maturity and a set of common diversity goals.
